When honeymooners Mike and his beautiful bride, Andy, learn of a rash of child abductions, they are swept into one of the desert’s darkest secrets.

As the couple tour in their new motor home, Andy discovers an old poster of a missing teen named Jessica.  Mesmerized by the poster, Andy tucks it away for future reference.  Soon thereafter, nightmares about the girl begin and intensify.  Certain that Jessica is still alive, Andy finally convinces Mike to use his past Air Force covert-ops skills to do a little research.  When they uncover a sudden increase in missing child cases at a chain of regional campgrounds, it becomes apparent that these are more than isolated incidents. 

A few months later they find Jessica wandering the streets of Imperial, dazed, confused, and obviously traumatized.  Andy and Mike bring her home.  As she recovers, Jessica reveals the story of her abduction, ensuing captivity, and ultimate escape.  Further digging into the teen's disappearance uncovers a sinister mafia operation of child abductions and baby laundering.  These events lead Mike and Andy down a twisting desert road toward the darkest of destinations.

The Connection Trilogy begins with The Imperial Connection followed by this work, Well Bred Connections and concluding with Hidden Connections.  Each novel stands alone and is complete in itself, but similar characters run through each of the three novels.
